The Seawork Commercial Marine Conferences are a must for all involved in the commercial marine industry who wish to explore the challenges, changes and emerging opportunities in today’s and tomorrow’s commercial marine and workboat sector.

The Seawork Commercial Marine Conferences will cover sessions on Unmanned Surface Vessels (USV’s) and Hybrid & Electric Propulsion. These half day conference sessions will be held during Seawork 2022 on the following dates:

  • 22 June 2022 Morning Session - USV Conference

The Conference events provide delegates with the opportunity to engage in discussions on key subject matters that are happening in these fast paced sectors.  Attendees will also have the chance to network with key industry professionals who are presenting and participating at the Conferences.

The 2019 Commercial Marine Conferences were well attended by both UK and International delegates. To view a selection of images from the 2019 edition of the conference, click here.

In 2019, USV delegates were provided with detailed insight into how autonomous USVs are being used and benefiting the Commercial Marine sector. Updates on Government policy and regulatory information were provided by representatives from the Department of Transport.  Attendee information from the USV Conference is detailed below:


In 2019, the Hybrid Propulsion session gave delegates real insight into operating vessels and evoked in-depth debate on the future of these vessels. Total costs and implications were candidly discussed by presenters with honest views on whether businesses could really afford to commit. The overall message was that hybrid is no longer a concept, it is a reality.

Following on from the conference, a number of the speakers commented that delegates had already visited their stands to talk in more detail about their presentations, some of which could turn into real business opportunities in the future. This provided further evidence of the desire of the Seawork audience to have significant and topical issues up for debate that will help them with future plans for their business.
